Rainbow Foil

Evening everyone!

Why oh why is it still not Friday?  Or, better yet, Tuesday, when I have 10 days off work, woohoo!  Going to pop down to Swansea for a few days to hopefully book our wedding venue and my Mum's organised an engagement party.  And then on Sunday we fly to Portugal :)

Anyhoo, today I have some nail foil from KKCenterHK to share with you.

Back in the day, my Mum and I used to use Special FX foils, so I was quite excited to try these ones out!

The foil comes in a little storage pot, which is fab for keeping it in good condition!  I have some foils that I bought from ebay a couple of years ago, and they just came in an envelope, so there's bit patches that can't be used because they're creased and crumpled.  None of those problems here!

The foils are super easy to use.  Apply the glue in a thin, even layer.  When the glue goes clear, it's ready (it'll still be sticky, so don't touch it!).  Press the foil down on top.  Give it a good rub and make sure you get into all the corners.  Remove the foil and ta da!  Pretty rainbow gradient nails without all the sponging :)  And with a bonus bit of holographic thrown in.

It's a good idea to use a layer of polish underneath, just in case you get any small gaps in your foil.

And here's this foil used for a full manicure:


Top coat is a must to seal the foil, otherwise your manicure really won't last.  Special FX used to sell a Sealer, because normal topcoats would cause the foil to crinkle.  I used one coat of Seche Vite here, and I don't think the crinkling is noticeable.

This foil (product NNAIL-E04) is available to buy here. It costs $7.69 (£5.09) for the foil, or $12 (£7.94) for a set of the foil plus the glue.  Please note, this isn't just nail glue!  You won't have much luck if you try to use that!

Don't forget, if you decide to make a purchase (of anything) from KKCenterHK, you can use the code polishedart for 10% off.


  1. Wow, foils give an amazing look!

    1. Yeah, I wish you could get polishes that shiny!

  2. This is beautiful! I have some I am keen to try out but I've bought nail glue, uhoh! I just love the end result, gorgeous!
